The first song early this morning was back in the 80′s with Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible” 

Favorite Line: 

She’s unavoidable, I’m backed against the wall

Over the weekend I caught up with/finished AMC’s “The Son” starring Pierce Brosnan. It’s  show set between 1850-1920, centered around Brosnan’s character Eli


One thing I didn’t like about it (unless I missed it), was how they failed to adequately address the transformation of Eli, the young Indian, into Eli the Colonel.  

I can have a bit warped way of looking at things at times and this show had a feel of how it could have been a prequel to “Dallas”. Obviously it’s not, but on Dallas, Jock Ewing was born in 1909(according to google), and that would easily put him in line time was as being one of McCullough’s grandsons. Since this was dealing with ranching and the oil business it was easy to tie that concept together in my mind.  Like I said, a bit warped. Maybe warped isn’t the best word since warped is generally negative. 

This first song this morning had a little twang. Jamey Johnson’s “Between Jennings and Jones”.  I still think it takes a set of stones to pen such a song, but in the end it is fitting.

Favorite Line:

Hanging out at the bars with the drunks and the stars
I found a few good old boys just like me
Started burnin’ our candles both hands in the middle
A bunch a boring out laws at high speed

The first song this morning was a live version of Robert Earl Keen’s “Feeling Good Again”. 

It reminds me of my hometown, even though there wasn’t really a place to go for live music.

Favorite line:

I wanted you to see ‘em all
I wished that you were there
I looked across the room
And saw you standin’ on the stair
And when I caught your eye
I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good feelin’ good again
